Elijah was a human being, even as we are. When he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. And then when he prayed again, the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. Father God, we pray that You would raise up some Christian leaders in East Timor who are like Elijah. Men and women of integrity and humility. People of prayer and fasting. People who know God’s heart because they seek Your heart and spend time with You. And when they speak and when they pray, we ask that many will listen and pay attention because what they hear is right and true and important to pay attention to. May their words and prayers stir up revival in this land (The Bible, James 5:17-18).
Lord, we pray that You will raise up people like Elijah of great faith in The Gambia. He was a human being who trusted in God. There was nothing special about him. He had no special power. He was a person just like the Christian believers in the country. Lord, we pray that the Churches will realize that anyone who is right with God can pray strong prayers. You answered him and there was no rain for three and a half years. With no rain, the crops did not grow. After that time, he prayed again. And, as a result, it rained. Now the rain had come, the crops could grow again. We pray that The Gambians will trust in You and become strong in faith that will change their circumstances (The Bible, James 5:18).
Lord, we pray for Christian brothers and sisters in Gaza who wander from the truth. Help the Churches to take every effort to bring him or her back to You. It is possible for a person, who knows the truth about the Lord Jesus, to turn away from Him. This is not when a Christian does something wrong. Sadly, it is more than that. It is when a person wanders away from Jesus Christ and denies the truth. Lord we pray that Christian brothers and sisters will look after one another. So, when one of them wanders away, the rest should feel it deeply and desire to try to bring back to You any who have turned away. Lord, show them the significance, as souls will be saved from death (The Bible, James 5:19).
Lord, we pray for West Bank constantly in conflict for a long time. Save those who are dying daily without knowing Your life-saving grace and salvation. We pray for lost souls all across the country who really need Your love and a new future. We pray that the Churches will take the gospel to all the people with love and care. Bring people to You with real trust and help them receive new life. Lord, draw even those who have deliberately turned away from You have heard the truth. Cause them to put their trust back in You. Then You will forgive that person of the many sins that he or she has done (The Bible, James 5:20).
